Waterfall....of Tears !

Post  Sue McDonald on Sat Nov 12 2011, 19:51

Laying in the bed, try to clear my mind,
try to think of happy thoughts,
solid sleep I seek to find,
I feel the wetness, on my cheek and then...

Peaceful sleep unknown to me,
my bodys gone all weak,
I've relaxed down, my breathings slow,
I'm now allowed to sleep.

A country walk, my soul does stroll
where natures beauty reigns,
the birds that sing, the breeze so cool,
just whispers past my cheek.

I hear the distant rumble, of water over rocks
feel the force of natures pull, its power such a shock,
feel the mist upon my cheek, as I'm pulled towards the creek,
the waterfall is calling me, I wish I wasn't weak.

The moistures getting heavier, as I walk along the track,
the rumbling like thunder, as the sky is turning black,
the waterfalls now reaching out, its calling loud my name
as droplets over moss rocks,get heavier with the rain.

I sit amongst the dampened grass, as thoughts fall from my mind,
would so love to sit beside the waterfall, with peaceful dreams to find,
crystal shards from waterfall, break cooling mirrored pool
rippling rings flow out to reach, the mouth of newborn foal.

Natures gathered all around, waterfall with deafening sound,
weathers changing very fast, the breeze, some speed has found.
I feel my breathing pick up pace, as I wake from deepened dream,
I hear and feel my heartbeat fast, as a trickle breaks the theme.

Like waterfall from heavy rain, tears run a torrent stream,
instead of over mossrocks, grass so green and mirrored pool,
they run along my nose and cheek, then end up on my pillow
I realise it's all a dream, I cry and sob and scream.

Pain of loss and also hurt, is hard to comprehend
especially when your trying hard, to not go round the bend !
One day, when I least expect it, the trickling will stop
then somehow, unlike the waterfall, the flow may finally stop.
